Dimple Surgery

To perform the surgery the doctor would use the local anesthesia and a biopsy instrument to create a whole in the skin to manually make a dimple. Once the doctor makes room for the future dimple, then he positions a stitch from one side of the cheek muscle to the other. The stitch is then tied to put the dimple permanently in order.
Dimple surgery is performed using local anesthesia and it takes around 30 to 45 minutes to perform. For the dimple surgery, a small incision is made through the mucous membrane inside the mouth. Then the skin and muscle on the spot of the incision are scratched off. An absorbable suture then stitches the two different areas of the skin and muscle around the cut. When the two areas stick, an artificial dimple is created. After healing they both stick permanently. The dimple remains permanently on the cheek and it takes a week or two for the affected part to heal. The scarring is complete once they heal up. Then the muscles and skin stick with each other causing dimples. For the initial few days of the surgery you may experience discomfort, the muscles heal quickly and there are little chances of infection.

      • I got a three molars removed from Dr Anurag Bhargav. The surgery was performed in around 30-40 minutes for all the molars. The surgery was performed really well and I had a good experience. After the surgery, I experienced pain for around a week, but the painkillers prescribed really helped. I was satisfied with the quality of surgery and the medical staff at the clinic were also very courteous. They followed up a couple of days after the surgery to take feedback and remind me of the steps needed to heal faster. Overall, I would recommend Dr Anurag Bhargav for teeth extraction. Thank you.
